  2. A blog post listing 35 fountain pen friendly notebooks, including reviews.
  3. Hello, everyone! I got hooked on fountain pens when I went to a pen show with the intention to look for good notebooks for bullet journaling. Well, before the first day was done, I had two FPs, two inks, and a lot of advice to absorb! I ended the show with one more pen (all Pilots: two Kaküno and a Metropolitan) and two more inks. Soon I combed local shops and ended up with a wonky-nibbed Lamy Al-Star and a non-working vintage Sheaffer. Since that fateful first week, I have attended a local meet-up where I was given a cheap but pretty Jinhao. Lots of future friends there, I hope. I also we
  4. I've figured out that the Pen and Gear brand notebooks sold exclusively at Walmart are fountain pen friendly! They aren't quite up there with Tomoe or Rhodia or Clairefontaine in terms of quality, but I've basically never experienced feathering with this paper, with the ONLY exception being feathering along a single paper fiber, which hardly qualifies as feathering, and I've used this paper with dip pens and fountain pen ink (for calligraphy). I can only speak for the spiral notebooks with a colored plastic cover, but I've been using these notebooks for years and the quality remains the same a
  5. I have used Muji notebooks and stationery and the minimalistic design appeals to me, and the paper is cheap and affordable, while still being great fountain pen paper. It's very easy to personalize the covers with stamps, stickers, etc. and in my experience, the cheapest recycled notebooks tend to have the best paper for fountain pens. The following is a link to the website, provided as a reference for the second poll question. I have no affiliation with Muji, beyond being pretty happy with their products and I am wondering about other people's experiences with them. http://www.muji.us/store/s
  6. Hey everyone! I've been checking the F-C website every once-in-a-while to see if the Model 40 Panther has come into stock yet. No luck on that yet. However, it seems that F-C has released a new color, orange, of their pocket sized notebook in a limited production run. Only 75 pieces have been made so if you're interested give it a look! http://www.franklin-christoph.com/the-stock-room.html It seems that the price is the same as the regular pocket sized leather notebooks. Notebook alone is $25.00, $31.25 with shipping in the US. Orders over $50 get free shipping so if you want to s

As this is a work in progress that will likely take me a couple months to complete (I'm not that fast), I'd love any feedback you have that could help me make these reviews more useful.

  9. What are your opinions on the paper quality and writing experience between these three? I've only used Rhodia of the three, and was thinking of trying out one of the other two, but I can't quite decide which one. From what I could gather on Amazon, Dingbats* notebooks have thicker paper (100g/m²), but I'm not a big fan of micro-perforations and they don't come in the B5 format that I've come to appreciate so much. The closest size to B5 they offer is an A5+ format which, while slightly bigger than A5, I fear it may still be a bit too small to my liking. Leuchtturm1917 notebooks, on the ot
  10. While I appreciate the experience of writing on high quality paper, I’m not keen on paying full price for it. And since I imagine many of you feel the same, perhaps we can alert each other to any great deals and deep discounts we come across at various retailers, particularly the online ones. Do you know of any great deals on paper and pen paraphernalia happening now? Let's share!

    Rhodia Paper Change?

    Last week I purchased a new large Rhodia Dotpad. I've used and loved Rhodia for many years so was utterly shocked to find that the paper does not support fountain pens well-even using dry writers I've had bleed-through and lots of shadowing/see through...although some pages are ok. The paper feels thinner also. Did I miss news about this? Is it a well-known change?
  15. Wanderings Notebook Unboxing: I created another thread about a week ago just to get the discussion going on The Wanderings Travelers Notebook. If you wish to read that thread you can find it over in this thread linked below. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/318689-travelersmidori-vs-wanderings-notebooks/ Let me first start out by saying that I am no way affiliated with The Wanderings Notebook nor have I been asked to do a review on the product. The Wandering's Notebook can be found on the companies main site or on amazon. I highly recommend ordering directly through the co

    Hi all, I'm a long long time fountain pen-ista. I've been using fountains pens for almost 50 years, with some gaps. For the longest time I thought I had to spend at least $80 (and this was over 20 years ago). I like messing about with Nemosines, I think they have the most useful calligraphy nib for non-calligraphers. I used to use Pelikans, but found they were too easy to lose with their soft weak clips. The cheap ones leak, the expensive ones jump out of your pocket. Lately I've been using TWSBI, my current go to is the Eco EF nib, Platinum Preppys and Varsitys are great pens. After th
  18. Well I think I finally found a use for one of my notebooks. Well, another use apart from testing pens and inks in them.... We have just bought a incredible whole half of a Wagyu beef 100% pure breed. I think it was 470 ish pounds on the carcass and 230 ish done butchering. Came out at 40CAD/kl which is a ridiculous price for what this is. Anyways, since this ton of delicious is packaged in hundreds of steaks in different cuts, roasts and everything else I want to be able to keep track of what I like the most and what I would like cut thicker next time or whatever observation I have.
  19. I'm about to embark on a Monster Mega review comparing about 25 to 30 different pocket notebooks. I plan to have a "home page" that aggregates the main data points for all the notebooks (in a big table), and links to the individual, detailed reviews of each notebook. In order to keep the aggregator/home page manageable, I want to limit the data points/criteria to the most popular attributes that people want to see. So I'd like to ask the paper enthusiasts out there: What attributes are most important to you when it comes to pocket notebooks? In other words, if you're reading a review for a p
  20. I saw an Allan's Journal on eBay at a slightly discounted price so I went for it. I'd always been curious about the product: a journal marketed to the clergy, on the same paper they use to print their Bibles and finished in the same ornate fashion. With the goatskin cover, not a cheap item. But as a writing experience, with a couple of caveats, it's first-rate. First: it's smallish, with a soft leather cover stamped "Journal" in gold. Its 256 pages are edged in red overlaid with gold, which gives it a look of ecclesiastical splendor. It's surprisingly light in the hand and pleasant to hold. Wh
  21. I've been doing my research on traveler's notebooks and gearing up to purchase one. In doing my humble research it's hard to miss the Traveler's / Midori notebook and I know it has a huge community. I've also stumbled on a bunch of custom ones on Etsy. I've been able to whittle it down between two products. The Traveler's / Midori The Wanderings https://wanderersway.com/products/the-wanderings-notebook According to Wanderings site; it can take all the inserts and accessories that the Midori one can so I wouldn't worry about that. I'm curious if anyone has purchased The Wanderings one
  22. The company I work for is very dedicated to being a responsible steward of our environment, from rain-water capture and living roofs to providing pens made with barrels from post-consumer recycled paper. Normally the choice for the paper used in our copiers and notebooks has not been fountain pen friendly, though (not surprisingly). Yesterday, however, at a client meeting, we provided clients with 6x9 inch notebooks made of lined ivory 100% recycled paper that stood up to my fountain pens impressively well. I was writing with a 0.9mm cursive italic nib using Pilot/Namiki blue ink and expe

    Bindewerk Notebooks !

    We were missing some decorative notebooks with of course fountain pen friendly paper. The German brand Bindewerk combines it all : colourful patterns with superb Italian Fedrigoni paper. Enjoy ! Catherine http://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/new-bindewerk-notaboekjes-amp-papier
  24. So this is a bit odd being on an international forum, but as a South African, I am truly unaware as to where to purchase proper, decent quality journals or paper. The best 'name-brand' I have found is moleskine, but the quality is a hit and miss with their work due to them sourcing from different places. Then if I had to import myself, I end up paying $60-$90 for a $18-$24 notebook. (quo vadis, Rhodia). Are there any South Africans on the forum that would be able to assist me in trying to find anything that comes close to the Rhodia, Quo Vadis, etc? No stationary shops I can find stocks a
  25. This is an ongoing bleed-through comparison test between ten different commercially available notebooks. This test will continue as long as there is interest in it and pages remaining in the current set of test notebooks. Method This is a simple test, and will involve three steps: 1. Every time I fill a pen with ink I will write the names of the pen, nib size, and ink in ten different notebooks. 2. I will assign each entry a score indicating the severity of bleeding based upon predetermined thresholds. Absence of bleed-though is scored with a checkmark. Bonus points will be given f
